“The press conference is expected to cover a number of topics of interest to Pokemon fans,” the company wrote, which basically tells us nothing.
Since Pokemon is a massive, sprawling franchise, we don’t know if these topics include the games, movies, anime or merchandise. However, we’re unlikely to get any new details about upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield — those Nintendo Switch games are getting their own Pokemon Direct announcement next Tuesday.
We know Japanese developer DeNA plans to launch a new mobile Pokemon game in the coming months, separate from Pokemon Go and Pokemon Rumble Rush . The company might also reveal Rumble Rush’s iOS release (it’s currently only on Android devices).
